More on the Magazine Article

Thank you so much for sharing my excitement via your comments - it means a lot to me that you all are along for the ride!

To answer a question that several of you had:

Yes, I did know about the article ahead of time - Woman's Day emailed me in late September, saying that my blog was going to be mentioned in their December 1st issue, and they "fact checked" a couple of things. I didn't say anything about it, because who knew if it really was going to happen? Things get bumped all the time in publishing, right? But then I got another email a couple of weeks ago, asking for my address so they could send me some advance copies of the issue and that's when I started to get really excited - it was hard to hold it in! And hello - seeing the article was jaw-dropping for me...when they said my blog would be "mentioned" in the magazine, I figured it would be included in a list of weight-loss blogs - never in my wildest dreams did I think it would be singled out with the two other blogs and that they would actually write a little blurb about me!<----Still walking on air, obviously!

I did find out that the issue won't be on newsstands until November 23, although subscribers have been receiving their copies in the mail. And I've already received a comment from a WD reader, so guess what, fellow bloggers? Our little world is opening up to a bunch of new people - get ready, because I'll bet a lot of you will be getting new readers from this article!
